If Chelsea are looking for a short-term, "plan b", tall striker, and it's pretty obvious that they are, then it's hard to think of a better choice than Giroud.
The former Montpellier star, who is on £90,000 a week at Arsenal, loves London, so may well prefer Chelsea to Dortmund.
"We have a clear position".
The January transfer window is in full swing so clubs are working hard trying to strengthen their squads for the second half of the season and put deals in place for the summer.
Aubameyang has scored 141 goals for Dortmund since joining the club from Saint-Etienne in July, 2013. Arsenal has started several attempts so far.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger apparently considers Aubameyang as the ideal replacement Alexis Sanchez, who left the Emirates club for Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.
But he has been a regular in Arsenal's Europa League campaign, starting all six games and netting three times.
Armenia head coach Artur Petrosyan has hit out at Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, and says he is happy that Henrikh Mkhitaryan has moved to Arsenal.
Evans is open to a move, but Arsenal may face a late battle, with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City keen to land the Northern Ireland global depending on his fitness status. The potential transfer hinges on whether Dortmund are able to get a replacement for the Gabon worldwide in time before deadline day of the January transfer window on Wednesday (31 January).
